Arriving at the newly-opened Riad Meriem, deep in the heart of Marrakech's famous city, Medina, it's like stepping through the looking glass. Away from the frenetic streets, this five-suite riad is a haven of beauty and tranquility. Owned by acclaimed New York designer Thomas Hays, it uses oriental textiles, modern paintings and Hays' own photography. The Aubergine suite (right) epitomises the intimate nature of the riads, and the exquisite oriental plunge pool, rooftop terrace and divine cuisine all add to the allure. Staff are on hand to arrange everything from a petal bath for two to a trip into the Atlas Mountains.
